    I bought the mounting brackets but they didn’t work with old classic 2 board. So I decided to use dual lock and was nervous but it works. So I’d imagine it will work just as well for the Ojai.

    I have the old version of the Classic 2 for about 10 years or so. I'm not sure what to say about it. It's solid. I bought it with the tour case and have never had an issue with either. It can hold a fair amount of pedals, but some of my pedalboards have been Tetris-ed together. I also have a...

    Powder Blue Overdrive Mockup Pedal

    Check this thread @PedalPCB posted a picture with the values on the board. So you can probably make your own BOM from that

    Solid or Stranded?

    I typically use stranded. I started pedal building on vero, and found that stranded wire was easier to use for the rats nest that inevitably happened.

    6 Band EQ Mods

    You can change the frequencies on the eq pedal. Here’s a gyrator eq calculator link For each frequency range there are two caps and two resistors. Adjusting those will adjust the frequency. if you look at the schematic pot 6 c5, c6, r10 and r11 set the...

    DIY Midi

    those are both good options. I suppose the HX effects would offer more flexibility and you'd be less likely to run out of space. I currently don't have any midi pedals, but am considering buying a few. I have always liked the idea of having fewer pedals that can cover a wide range of tones, but...

    While I am not knowledgable enough to help with MIDI I saw this pop up on the madbean forum and thought it might be beneficial.

    String gauge what are you using?

    My tele currently has 9’s in standard tuning. In the past I used 10’s and 11’s. but I developed tendinitis in my wrist from repetitive work in a warehouse job. After I quit it would still bother me once in a while. So I started using lighter gauged strings and it hasn’t been an issue since. my...

    Desoldering SMD Chips

    I think I can wait a little longer. the board is a mess. It was completed and working but it had noise issues that I was unable to troubleshoot, so it has become a donor board.

    Hitting the Brick Wall

    By no means have I built anywhere near as many pedals as you have, but I feel like I hit a brick wall last year. I have been slowly trying to finish some projects up, but its more tedious now than it ever was. I have been trying to play guitar more often which has increased my motivation to...

    Greatest Hits Thread

    None of my builds are "best looking" typically plain enclosures, sometimes they have rubber stamp labels. I tried metal stamps once... it was ineffective. However, my favourite build so far has been a veroboard rat. It doesn't have the unobtanium chip. but it sustains for days, plays well with...

    Modulation Monday-Luna Tremolo

    Looks great. I’ve always appreciated your enclosure finishes. I also agree with your sentiment, I was spoiled with amp trem for years and when I switched to a lighter amp I lost that amazing trem. Anyways, I’ve struggled to find a replacement trem, I’ll have to give this a look.
